"This clip is a fully edited composite of very rare footage of the Hollies recording "On A Carousel" in the legendary Abbey Road Studios in 1967. This was cut from a 20-minute piece which features each of the band members recording their individual parts on that historic day, when in the next studio the Beatles were recording pieces of "Penny Lane"."
Tonight, we just learned that one Reginald Maurice Ball (born12 June 1941) aka. Reg PRESLEY, passed away just yesterday (4 February 2013), losing his battle with cancer. He was the alternate king of 60's Punk-rock to us Garage-heads... Rest In Peace Reggie + The Troggs 60's legacy will live on Forever. We salute you with one of your original compositions, one of the most beautiful ballads of the Love era :
I know "Can't Explain" was actually a minor hit in the US prior to that (It was actually covered as early as late 1965 on Boston's The Ones' rare all cover LP), but... Was this the first time American Teens would see the mighty Oo' on TV, on cult Teen program : Shindig!, and Live to boot (taped from the Windsor jazz & blues festival, I think... in '65 too!) ?
The Who had to still work and tour extensively in order to establish themselves as Pop Stars post-Monterey in USA... As can be seen on rare footage of live action in Peoria, Illinois and Pete Townshend interview in this documentary from 1968 : "All My Loving"!
